Summer is truly here and at Multifold Doors we are enjoying our bi-folding doors wide open. The British people are spending more time in their gardens, relaxing after a hard day’s work. This is not something we are used to. So we thought we would take a look at making that outdoor space of yours take full advantage of the weather.

The Mediterranean approach to summer is to enjoy it sitting outside chatting and eating until it’s time to go home. This isn’t the standard British approach to a summer’s eve, however I think it should be lovingly adopted. Instead of well-maintained grass try changing part of your garden for a patio. This will not only create a lovely space to sit in but also radiate heat in the evening and allow you to walk around barefoot without getting your feet muddy.

Once the basics for your outdoor sun trap are finalised you can start making the larger decisions. The Mediterranean, like Britain has stunning vistas, so having your patio can let you enjoy your view all evening. Now we would recommend installing Multifold Doors bi-folding doors. This is not just so you can enjoy your view all year round but so you can make your new patio part of your home. With such a low threshold the change between living space or kitchen and patio is seamless. The final touch is the colour of your bi-folding doors. Colours can dramatically change the feel of a space so choosing the right one is an area where we can help you. We have our own Tuscan collection, which varies from an olive green to Tuscan terracotta. For this project we have chosen Olive Grove as it supports that subtle Mediterranean theme. We also have over 150 RAL colours available for you to choose from if this doesn’t suit your perfect patio.   

The next area to look at is the furniture. Outdoor furniture is becoming much more popular and competition is greater than ever meaning that you can find great value sets. Using this opportunity you can truly bring the outdoors in by creating a comfy patio living or dining room.  You can now buy a table, chair and parasol package for a reasonable price. A dark wood or rustic metal could lovely with the rest of a Mediterranean style. To complete the outdoor evening look try a fire basket and some pot plants in traditional Italian pots.

   

Adding bi-folding doors to an extension with a patio is very popular. The flow from indoors to outdoors and openness are some of the most common reasons why people buy Multifold Doors bi folding doors.

At Multifold Doors we are all keen on different types of designs. The Mediterranean look is one of our favourites as it utilises so many aspect of the bi-folding doors. Contact us to find out more about bi-folding doors.
